Players to watch out:

Esha Oza

The 26-year-old all-rounder, averaging 29.68, has amassed 1900 runs from 73 innings, while also striking 53 wickets from 58 outings, registering respective bests of 158* and 3/0. Notching up a 61* in a warm-up game and producing figures of 1/14, 1/7, and 3/13, Esha has further impressed this campaign and will be counted on for the goods.

Heena Hotchandhani

The 23-year-old left-arm off-spinner, with an average of 8.46 and an economy rate of 3.88, has scalped 15 wickets from 12 T20Is, while also adding 60 runs to the tally. Heena has been in outstanding form lately, including the warm-up games, where her returns read 2/16 (4) and 0/4 (2), and it’ll be hoped that she replicates this success during the tournament.

Modester Mupachikwa

The 27-year-old opening batter has racked up 1118 runs from 48 T20I innings at an average of 31.05, with the highest score of 75*. Modester looked in decent form during the warm-up games, registering scores of 11 and 43*, while in the tournament opener, she departed for a duck. It’ll be expected of the seasoned batter to find her footing.

Kelis Ndhlovu

The 18-year-old in T20Is, from 35 outings, has accumulated 608 runs and claimed 35 wickets from 33 innings, including respective bests of 58* and 3/12. Though Kelis departed cheaply for 7 in the competition opener, she produced figures of 1/9 (4). She has been in notable form with both the bat and ball and can be banked upon for all-round performances.

Pitch:

The center wicket at Tolerance Oval is a balanced one that slightly favors the bowlers. While it is conducive for batting, the average score in the 120s suggests greater assistance for bowlers, especially spinners.

Weather:

The temperature is expected to hover around 28°C, and the chance of rain is minimal. The overhead conditions will be sunny, moderate winds are expected, and the humidity will be at 40%.

Fantasy playing XI:

Modester Mupachikwa, Theertha Satish, Chipo Mugeri-Tiripano, Esha Oza, Mary-Anne Musonda, Kavisha Egodage, Kelis Ndhlovu, Josephine Nkomo, Heena Hotchandhani, Precious Marange, Vaishnave Mahesh
